Default Re: Police Kneeling with protesters and protesters respond by...


"Red Lines Host Anya Parampil speaks with Alec Karakatsanis, the founder and executive director of Civil Rights Corps and author of "Usual Cruelty: The Complicity of Lawyers in the Criminal Injustice System," about police efforts to win positive coverage amidst a nationwide uprising against their increased militarization and abuse of power. Alec reveals the shocking record of Chris Swanson, the Sheriff in Flint, Michigan, who won positive coverage for "joining" demonstrations in the city while personally profiting off the imprisonment of poor people of color in his jails. They also analyze the record of Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo, who has emerged has a leading voice in mainstream media coverage of the protests.
